Hot damn. Compared to my NYC, Chi-town is huge.
Lots of spread out enclaves of not to-be-missed yumminess.
I haven't been in 10 years and frankly I am a bit overwhelmed.
Having said that, what area would you choose to be in the best "food neigborhood"....?
Currently we are booked for the Fairmont Millenium. So far the places I've been interested in checking out are in the West Loop. The concierge said it would be a 10-15 minute taxi ride based on traffic.
Is there anything awsome NTBM (Not to be missed) in the Loop, near Grant Park? Should I base myselfin a more food-centric area? Seems Fulton Market is a hotbed of culinary oferings.
Basically which area has the highest concentration of place I will want to check out?
I have a pretty extensive history with Chicago and have done all the big name stuff. This time I want to focus on Big Star, Urban Belly, Publican, avec, franks and dawgs, xoco etc....no Blackbird, Alinea, Spiaggia etc....
Sorry for the all over the place prose. So excited to get it all going!
